Change in weather didn't change much

Despite a drastic overnight weather change, not much changed in the overall totals from Day 1 to Day 2 in the Cherokee Casino Tahlequah Bassmaster Elite at Lake Tenkiller.

On Day 1, the 75 anglers weighed-in 42 five-bass limits and 291 bass totaling 571 pounds, 6 ounces. On Day 2, there were 39 limits and 298 bass totaling 573 pounds, 8 ounces.

However, the anglers who caught them were where the big changes occurred. Half the top 10 on Friday weren't in the top 10 Thursday, including new leader Chris Zaldain, who was 13th on Day 1, and Frank Talley, who moved all the way from 42nd place to 9th with the big bag of the day, which weighed 14-8.

The 35th place Day 2 cut weight remained amazingly consistent. Jeff Gustafson was tied for 35th on Day 1 with 8-0 pounds. He caught 8-5 Friday and took 35th-place with 16-5.
